For the last thirty years,
For the last thirty years, this exciting race of homemade vehicles that run on ball-bearings (known locally as "balinjere" – hence the name) instead of wheels, down Opatija's main street, to the delight of thousands of spectators, has always been one of the top attractions of the carnival in Opatija. The Balinjerada is partly a race in which the "pilots" of these unusual vehicles must show their driving skills, and partly a carnival parade, in which carnival groups make ironic comments on current events in society through their imaginative constructions, in which they have invested months of effort. The race itself starts at 12 pm from Hotel Bristol by OHM Group.
(Sunday) 11:00 am - 12:00 am
Trg Vladimira Gortana 2/1, 51410 Opatija, Croatia
